Nothing wrong with the clutch fan that's there, but my MPG is miserable in the truck, always has been. I'd like just a tad more power too. I've weighed the pro's and cons, and I'd really like to do this.

Automotive relays have 4-5 terminals. They will be labeled. 2 terminals will be for the coil that turns it on. One side to ignition on 12v+ and the other side to the temp sensors. One side of the fans can be connected directly to ground. The other side goes to the common or "C" terminal on the relay. The normally open or "NO" terminal on the relay goes to battery positive. A fuse at the battery would be a good idea.
With it wired up like that the system will turn on and off with the ignition switch and the sensors will handle when the fan is needed.

I wired in a small led on the dash just to show me when the fan was running, it was nice to be able to watch the fan and get an idea how long you can drive before your fans ever come on.
In winter as long as i didnt hit traffic just the air moving across the radiator would keep it cool enough the fans would never come on.
I suggest two fans with a seperate temp switch and relay for each.
life is like a roll of toilet paper. the closer you get to the end-the faster it goes.
